Andrea, in answer to #2, by the Dublin Core definition, DCAT itself
would not be a profile because it originates classes and properties. DC
profiles reuse but do not create vocabulary elements. A DC profile is
always based on vocabularies defined (preferably in a standard way)
elsewhere.

That said, presumably you could create a DCAT profile that is exactly
all of the classes and properties that are included in DCAT. If profiles
include information such as cardinality, value pick lists, etc., then
such a profile would provide information not included in the DCAT ontology.
